The recently revealed 2012 Audi A6 Avant luxury station wagon may not be coming to the U.S. but does that mean Audi can release a promo video for the car that’s almost identical to one of this year’s most popular local car commercials?
We’ll leave you to be the judge as to whether or not the ads are too similar. One, as mentioned, is Audi’s new promo for its latest generation A6 Avant and the other is the famous ‘Imported From Detroit’ ad for the 2011 Chrysler 200 sedan, which starred rapper Eminem and featured during this year’s Super Bowl.
Interestingly, it’s not Chrysler that’s causing up a storm over the ad but rather Eminem's music publisher Eight Mile Style, which claims Audi used the music from Eminem's hit track ‘Lose Yourself’ for its A6 Avant promo video without authorization. The publisher is now reportedly seeking an injunction against Audi in Germany's Hamburg Regional Court.
